### HideShow timer Statistics

In order to determine automobile insurance premiums for a driver, insurance companies calculate various risk factors; as the risk factors increase, so does the premium. Certain factors, such as the driver’s age and past accident history, play an important role in these calculations. Yet these premiums should also increase drives. After all, a person’s chance of being involved in a mishap increases in proportion to the number of times that person drives.
17.Which one of the following, if true, most undermines the argument?
(A) People who drive in frequently are more likely to be involved accidents that occur on small roads than in highway accidents.
(B) People who drive infrequently are less likely to follow rules for safe driving than are people who drive frequently.
(C) People who drive infrequently are less likely to violate local speed limits than are people who drive frequently.
(D) People who drive frequently are more likely to make long-distance trips in the course of a year than are people who drive infrequently.?
(E) People who drive frequently are more likely to become distracted while driving than are people who drive infrequently.

The conclusion reads After all, a person’s chance of being involved in a mishap increases in proportion to the number of times that person drives.

According to the conclusion the more you drive the greater the risk of being involved in an accident. What if we can prove that this isn't the case? B certainly does that by showing that

People who drive infrequently are less likely to follow rules for safe driving than are people who drive frequently. Therefore by not following safe rules they stand a higher chance of being involved in an accident.

B for me.

stem argues that if a person drives more, their premiums should be more, because they are more likely to get in accidents.

B says that people who dont drive a lot are the risky ones, as they are not obeying the rules and generally not driving safely. so, we can have a direct relationship for higher premiums just because someone drives more.
